Indigodragonfly in the shop now!!

New pretties in the shop! Indigodragonfly from Canada.

We have lace, MCN sock, DK and a sport/DK Polworth/silk blend in jumbo skeins, all hand-dyed by the lovely Kim. We will have a blog interview with her soon.

I'm really struggling to photo the greeny-blue yarns, so there are a few missing photos. I've added descriptions of the colours which I hope will help you choose, (colours listed dominant first) but I didn't want to put photos on that are really miles away from how the yarns look in real life.

We also have just taken delivery of some Sweet Georgia yarn, which will also be in the shop soon. Mum reports the colours are yuuuumy, I will get to see them tomorrow!

Also, the website will soon be getting a revamp so apols if things look a bit neglected here for a while. We hope to have the new shiny one up and running before Christmas.

Have a look at it all here!

WIP: Crochet blanket

This blanket has been on the go for two years, and uses all the Classic Romney colours. Advice on how to stop gratefully received! This is my first crochet project so ideas on edgings for hexagons would be fab....

Good grief, I haven't posted here for a whole year. Is having a baby a good enough excuse? I suspect not. A few weeks, maybe, but not a whole year.

Anyway, I have been shamed, and told off, and it has been pointed out that I do actually have some things I can show you, so here is a lovely scarf knitted from our Manos Serena:

This pattern is Kleio, available through Ravelry for $6.50.

Here's also the reason for my slight distractability these days:

The cuteness! And yes, she has several hand knits already...
